Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

Recently, I was introduced to Young Living Oils as I was suffering from an autoimmune flare up that resulted in a recurrence of Epstein Barr virus. I was zapped of all energy and I felt like I had the flu. I was at two weeks without any relief from any of the over the counter and prescription drugs I was taking.

Then my friend Amy, a distributor of Young Living, dropped off the Thieves and RC oil blends on my door step with a few Thieves cough drops. She explained to me how I should apply and diffuse it. After 2 days I was feeling a lot better and in 4 days I was almost 100%. I then decided to become a distributor myself for the discounts and PV rewards.

Our weather went from 30 degrees to 80 degrees over night, it rained a lot and my mold and seasonal allergies began acting up. I immediately began using RC on my feet, my neck and Thieves on my chest. I diffused Frankincense oil each night, and made a tea.

My tea consisted of fresh Ginger root, one inch sliced removing skin. I boiled hot purified water and added:

* 1 teaspoon of natural organic honey
* 1 drop Lemon oil
* 1 drop Thieves oil

I have never been able to fight off allergies that result in a sinus infection during the winter. I have never been able to lessen the time of a Epstein Barr episode and have never been able to ward off an oncoming sore throat until today.

I am so thankful for these precious gifts!

I purchased the essential oils reference book and have been treating my children with the oils now. They are loving it and feel special each night when I apply them before bed. It has become part of their bed time routine.

I highly recommend these essential oils!

To help ward of future ailments and to help with energy, I have began taking 1 ounce of NingXia Red juice 2 times per day! I have noticed that I feel better and also highly recommend this juice.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: sinus-infection — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
2.Associated topics: sinus-infection — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
3.Associated topics: chronic-fatigue-syndrome-(CFS) — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
4.Associated topics: seasonal-allergies — "The lemon-based nasal spray [containing Lemon, Melaleuca Quinquenervia, and Ravintsara] was a good alternative to conventional medicine for the treatment of perennial [pet dander, dust mites] and seasonal allergic and vasomotor rhinopathy."Link
5.Associated topics: allergic-reaction,seasonal-allergies — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
6.Associated topics: sinus-infection — "The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."Link
7.Associated topics: allergic-reaction,seasonal-allergies — "[L]avender oil inhibits immediate-type allergic reactions [anaphylaxis] by inhibition of mast cell degranulation in-vivo and in-vitro."Link
8.Associated topics: allergic-reaction,seasonal-allergies — "[T]he biological activity of 20 essential oils (EOs) from herbal plants and citrus fruits were investigated in terms of mammalian DNA polymerase (pol) inhibitory activity, cancer cell (human colon carcinoma) growth inhibitory activity, antiallergic activity... in rat basophilic leukemia cells, and antioxidant activity.... Among these EOs, chamomile... showed significant effects on both cancer cell growth and mast cell degranulation. On the basis of these results, chamomile EO can be recommended as a potentially useful, bioactive candidate for therapeutic applications."Link
